Do dreams really come true? Or is it more of a nightmare?
Casting details emerged earlier today on who the new Peter Pan is going to be. For those of you who don’t know, Warner Bros. is producing a reboot of the classic fairy tale Peter Pan to be released sometime in 2015, and is going to be directed by filmmaker Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna). And who did Warner Bros. find to bring Peter Pan back to the big screen?
Well, Levi Miller of course.
Who? You never would have heard of him. Miller is a little-known child actor who starred in independent films including Akiva, a short about a secluded holocaust survivor who believes in humanity again after meeting a young boy, and Great Adventures, a story about an older man reliving his favorite memories as a child. He also starred in one episode of the short-lived 2011 sci-fi series “Terra Nova”, playing as the younger incarnation of one of the supporting characters.
Why did Wright decide to go with this kid? Doesn’t matter. The supporting cast he’s paired up with is exemplary to say the least, and will no doubt be very helpful with him in adapting to his character of Peter Pan. The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s Rooney Mara is tagged to play Tiger Lily, the Wolverine himself Hugh Jackman is set to play Blackbeard; even Tron: Legacy’s Garret Hedlund is going to portray the villainous Captain Hook, so there’s no shortage of wide-versed actors who won’t be willing to help him with his part.
What do you guys think? Do you think Miller will do the role justice? Or do you think someone else should have been considered for the role?
Comment below, let me know.
